I have a P4P800 SE motherboard.

Intel P4/3.4 ghz cpu (retail not oem)

One gig of ddr 400 ram.

C: 80 gig FAT32 (connected to motherboard) FAT32
D: 80 gig FAT32 (connected to motherboard) FAT32

Two cdrom drives next (connected to motherboard)

E: 250 gig sata (connected to motherboard - raid connections) NTFS
F: 250 gig sata (connected to motherboard - raid connections) NTFS

The drives are not formatted in a raid configuration.

The system treats them as if they are large (seperate)
hard drives so to speak.

Video card is ATI Radeon All In Wonder 9600

O/S installed is Windows 2000 Pro

-------

Symptons :

When the AI logo is enabled the system gets past the post.

Sometimes (if it reaches it) it will error out and reboot
when it tries to load windows.

However. I have also seen it reboot when I had a windows 98 se
disc in the floppy drive and had the bios set to boot from the
diskette first.

The odd thing. If I have the AI logo disabled/off. Then everything
is fine. No reboots and system is highly stable.

I did not install the AI menu thingy for changing the graphic logo
if that is a question some one had.

There was a few times it made it to the windows desktop. Then while
I was talking to some one on the telephone. It rebooted while I was
sitting in a chair, away from the unit.

Also I am not over clocking the stuff. I wanted to leave the
parts so to speak alone and not pre-age the unit by over clocking
if I can say it that way.

I do have the default on board sound card and on board network card
enabled if this matters.

Another note. The reboots. I had the network cable unplugged from the
onboard network card. So the system was not connected to any networking.

Did the reboots happen even if there was no O/S on the system other than
a test with Windows 98 SE command.com etc on C: drive? Yes.

I would like to enable to the logo but I the system is stable and I
am unsure what to do in order to have that picture come up without
reboots....

I changed FORCE BIOS to off int he bios and it seems
(the logo to work) beats me if that had anything to do with it
or not. Maybe it was available all along after I figured out
how to get the FAT32 drives to work with the SATA drives.
